i didn't look at the TQ, but the 2.0 was making quite a bit less than the 2.3 that was pretty even with HP.
it seems all the tracks they have down there (he's in columbia) are ... "wierd" as you can see by the serroundings. the track was not prepped well he said, so 1st and 2nd was a lot of spinning. he runs stock suspension and clutch/fly in most cases, so that doesn't help either.
i'm going to hit up the local strip as soon as the car is back and i can get someone to head over with me. but i'm looking for high 12's....not low
